Tip of the day: Respond by NOT and calm down yourself

Respond to the thought only after you've taken some time to observe and reflect on it. When people have a lot of trouble with chronic worry, they tend to rush into action, reflexively, without any reasonable review of the evidence, as if that thought were a blowtorch that someone had just applied to their feet. Instead, follow this rule: don't just do something, stand there.

Train yourself to respond NOT, in this way:
1. Notice you have a thought
2. Observe and review the thought
3. Then take whatever action you deem beneficial
